COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eighteen

Same shit, different day.

Uh what did I do today? Walked Drax of course, made another loaf of bread, cross stitched, watched a movie and cross stitched.

Life is mushing into one big day and it’s driving me crazy. I really need to stop eating bread, so I’m going to stop making it unless it’s for someone else. Tomorrow I weigh myself so we’ll see if the walking and workouts beat out the bread. (Probably not).

I did not workout today. I couldn’t find the motivation and when I messaged my bestfriend who is the queen of working out, she told me, “Sunday’s are for rest days.” It wasn’t much help so I didn’t workout.

Dave and I watched Onward on Disney Plus, it’s so cute! Go watch it if you have Disney Plus. If you don’t have it then what the hell are you doing? Don’t you know we’re in a pandemic? Nothing else to do!

So I have YET to be paid from EI, just as an update. This shit is taking forever and now tomorrow the website is going to be a complete shitshow.

Nothing else to report.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Seventeen

Whoops! Forgot to write my blog last night and now I’m starting my streak over again.

Yesterday was a weird day for me. For some reason I kept dropping EVERYTHING, I dropped a cucumber, my keys, my phone a 100 times, pototoe peeler and a box of flour which exploded onto my floor. Needless to say I was not having a good day.

Also yesterday I could NOT handle the boredom, I just didn’t know what to do with myself and anything that I tried to do I just wasn’t having it. I tried reading, playing animal crossing, the puzzle, it just wasn’t working. I settled for making a new cross stitch and video chatting my mum. That was a nice catch up for the evening.

For dinner I made baked potatoe soup and because I was just having a fantasic day and it takes a bit to make, by the time it was done I just didn’t want it anymore. I ate it because that’s what I made but it was meh; Dave loved it though, he had two bowls full.

Yesterday was rest day so I didn’t do any workouts and that’s probably for the better, since I probably would have fell over and broken something LOL.

That’s all folks, sorry for the late post!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Sixteen

Talk about a depressing day in the news!

Did anyone watch this mornings news? I watch it every morning then turn it off to avoid our reality. Let me save you the time, Trump is a fucking dick, we’re nowhere near the end of this situation and keep social distancing and washing your damn hands. On to the next day.

Today was workout day, there was also zero motivation. I sat around for a bit trying to get myself motivated to do the workout. I got it done but it wasn’t a good workout. Those days happen though. This morning I did a glute workout which consisted of 20 x 3 elevated glute bridges, 10 x 3 elevated single leg glute raises, 20 x 3 hip thrusts, 10 x 3 single leg thrusts, and10 x 3 single leg Romanian deadlift. Plus a 2 and half kilometer walk with Drax. My ass is going to be sore tomorrow. 

The rest of the day was a write off. Dave wanted to go to Krispy Kreme, we drove all the way there (30min drive) to find out the drive thru line up was 70 cars deep so we turned around to get DQ (that is literally 3 minutes drive from my house). The rest has been a Netflix and Quarantine night. 

For some reason I’m hella tired today so it’s time to wash my hand that has had Olaplex in it all day and go to bed!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fifteen

15,000 steps!

15,336 steps to be exact. Literally all I did was walk today! Drax went on 5 walks today so he’s out cold. He’s been such a good boy during this whole pandemic, I thought for sure, “what am I going to do with a 90lb dog?!?” But it’s worked out fine.

Drax, the 90lb pittie of love.

Dave wanted to go to the grocery store so we did that. I personally didn’t think we needed that much food but he thought so so we went. Usually we don’t go grocery shopping until out fridge/freezers are empty but you know, pandemic! I guess it’s good to have extra food always in the house.

This is what my afternoon was

My afternoon was the picture above! Plus making dinner, brownies and taking Drax on his evening walk (one of the 5 walks). Today was rest day so no workout, that’ll be tomorrow, I’m sure I’ll die especially after beer. 🤦‍♀️

OH Dave and I got some seeds to pant because we’re bored and taking care of our dog is extremely easy so now we’re gonna take care of some plants! I’ll post pictures tomorrow or of when they actually sprout.

That’s pretty much it, I keep seeing likes from the same people, I appreciate you guys reading!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Fourteen

April Fools you can all go to work now!

When you put lotion on your hands and they instantly go red and burn like crazy because they’re so dry. Quarantine life!

This morning Dave had a zoom meeting so I walked Drax and attempted to keep him quiet. After that we walked Drax a BUNCH today. This dog is passed out! Normally he’s all in my face wanting to play. His life is literally eat, walk, shit, sleep, repeat. Living the dog dream.

This morning I worked out and watched Dave struggle to workout (he’s lazy lol) I did side planks, hip thrust, lunges, pushups, lunge pulses, and Russian twists. You do each exercise for 30 secs with minimal breaks in between. After you’ve completed all the exercises you take 2 mins break then repeat 3 times. It’s simple but effective! Plus 13,000 steps later helps.

I cleaned my house again and finally vaccumed so now the floors looks clean again. That’ll only last until tomorrow though because dog life! Not much else was done besides hanging out playing Animal Crossing (the old one, I wish I had the new one but expensive!) And dog walks.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Thirteen

I have never been so sore in my life. I’m walking around like an 80 year old!

Yesterday I did a workout (check out yesterdays blog if you’re interested) and it literally killed me. Now I haven’t worked out in forever because I’m a lazy adult that just gave up apparently, but we’re getting back into it. I decided today was going to be rest day (because rest is important too) then tomorrow I’m doing another workout. Stay tuned for that.

Walked Drax a couple times today but it was a misty/rainy day again. This weather is okay to keep people inside for COVID-19 but for Drax and my weather related migraines are not happy about it at all!

Today was lazy/grumpy day. Just being locked up this much is making me go stir crazy. I just want things to go back to normal.

On the bright side my friend bought me Swiss Chalet and I’m stuffed and happy about it. Boredom is life lately and I need to get out of it! Tell me your ideas to stay busy in the comments!

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Twelve

Today was a good-ish day!

I did my usual morning routine with the dog but decided I was going to weight myself and workout. Have you ever heard have Hannah Bower? She’s like my favourite ‘workout person’, she’s gone through the journey herself of gaining weight, health issues and negetive self image. She’s so real it’s refreshing, she shows her family, her parenting style and so much more. She’s just positive and encouraging. She posted all her at home workouts in a story so I found one of those and did it! It was simple but it killed me (I’m hella out of shape); it consits of squats, situps, pushups, side lunges and supermans. Your first rep is 20 of each exercise, then you do 15 of each exercise, then 12, 10, 8 and 5 with minimal breaks in between. My legs are SORE.

My boyfriend misses hockey so much that he is using his NHL game to play computer vs computer just to watch the Leafs play. The man is going crazy. LOL

Not much else happened, besides we found puzzles at the dollarstore cause my awesome friend told me they were there! We got 3, they’re only 500 pieces but it’s something to do! We might set up a puzzle trade with someone because everywhere is sold out of them. Pictures to come!

That’s pretty much it! I actually almost forgot to write this so you know, duh. I’m going to go wash my very dirty hair and go to bed with Drax, he’s the best cuddle buddy.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Eleven

The boredom was hella real today.

It poured this morning until 1pm so Drax was pretty much in bed. At around 1:30 – 2pm it got sunny and warm so I took Drax on a walk. He wasn’t expecting the heat and was a thirsty little boy so we cut it short. It was good we got our exercise in though. We came back and about 30-40 mins later it started to rain again, thankfully I didn’t get caught in it!

I literally did NOTHING today so I don’t have much to say. I did a cross stitch for my step dad, I honestly don’t know if he reads this, I’ll have to check with my mum before posting a photo, so you might see that tomorrow.

The rest of the day was a right off, we watching TV and ate pretty much. I’m going a little stir crazy and just want to be at work (who thought they would be saying that eh?)

Well my mum told me this there’s a living room concert that I wasn’t interested in but now I’m going to watch because why the hell not, plus the movie my boyfriend put on is weird and he’s not watching it anymore so too bad.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Ten

It rained in Ontario today and if you know my dog, you know he HATES rain therefore it was a quiet day. A much needed quiet day.

We only went on 3 walks today due to the rain and that Drax’s ears are bugging him. His vet is closed on the weekend because of this damn virus so the poor guy has to wait until Monday. I’ve been cleaning them as much as I can but I think one has an infection so we gotta get some antibiotics for him. On rainy days my dog sleeps the day away, he loves snow but hates getting wet with rain so he avoids it at all costs. On the bright side I got amazing cuddle time with him!

This morning I made my sister’s bread but that only takes an hour and a bit then you just let it cool off. She came to pick it up in the afternoon and she said it was delicious! I need to look up other things to bake now because quarantine!

I started a new cross stitch, which is for my mum so I can’t show it. Hi Mum! Eventually I will show all of these, I’m sure the suspense is real!

That’s about it folks. I’m sure eventually these will get better as I get more bored and stir crazy. How’s everyone doing?

Stay tuned.

COVID-19 Layoff: Day Nine

I definitely did not make today interesting.

Drax got walked five times today, I did not work out and I literally cross stitch all day. Literally worked on the same cross stitch all day and I can’t even show it because it’s a gift for my sister and I know she reads this blog! Hi Caitlin!

My sister also wants some bread so I made that today and it’s currently rising so tomorrow morning I can bake it!

Dave and I did go to Walmart to get a new puzzle but they were completely sold out so now were going to order one off of Chapters website because apparently their still delivering! We’ll probably do that tomorrow.

I did cut my boyfriend’s hair, which I’m happy about because he doesn’t look homeless anymore! Woohoo!

Only other thing to write about is that my dog is EXTREMELY suck today! He follows me everywhere I go, I give him attention, we played in an empty field today, he got treats, I just don’t know what his issue is. Knowing him it’s something simple like Dave and I are not sitting on the couch with him but now he’s finally asleep and we’ll start the whole thing over again tomorrow!

Stayed tuned for maybe fun adventures.
